City of Agency

  • Krzysztof Nawratek


This chapter is a conclusion, summing up the main arguments of the book. It argues that the creation of a post-capitalist city cannot be achieved through a linear movement from the existing world to the projected one. Understanding cities as fragments of the new global, All-under-Heaven, post-capitalist Empire, I refuse to see cities as autonomous entities. I follow Jünger’s trigonometry, focusing on the co-existence of separated actors, ideas, and spaces.
